    Thank you and your colleagues for this good effort to remake the web site. I shall study the pages.

    While exploring the new web site, I came across the Affiliate List as a .pdf and a .xls file (https://abana.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/AffiliateListAsOf16Jul2017.xls)
    This looks to be potentially very useful, but one thing that is necessary to realize that potential would be to include a column showing the function of the person listed on each line. For example, who is the editor for each affiliate? Some of us have email addresses like “”, but most simply use their personal email address. So the question is, is the person on a given line the president, editor, webmaster, or whatever?

    Bill, Having completed my profile, a minor suggestion would be the addition of Etsy to list of web sites (LinkedIn, Facebook, Yelp, etc.)

    Bill, The Find a Blacksmith page should explain how members can be listed. Thanks again.

      When you login in the first info you see is your profile.
      At the bottom of the profile it says “password” followed by the word in blue “change”
      Click on “change” and it will give you a box to type your new password in
      Still having problems, contact the ABANA central office for assistance

    My son, 12 has just found your site. We are trying to learn about your memberships. Your membership page only allows you to sign up- no info about what the levels provide. For example the youth says receives Hammers Blow only. No idea what that is. Also your education calendar doesn’t show complete details. This site is def head and shoulders over the old though. Thanks

      The menu item below Join describes what the benefits of membership are and describes the Anvils Ring and Hammers Blow magazines. Placing your cursor over an item on the calendar and double clicking will open a page with details of the event. In addition their are links on that page to go to additional details. Many additional items will be added to the calendar in the next few weeks. Also at the top left of the calendar where you can display the calendar as a week, day, list, or you can display the location of the events on a map.
